Stuff 13

Yet More About Boobs

In episode nine, I introduced the subject of boobs for CDs. I talked more about them in subsequent installments. After that blog post, I got a very nice email from a GG, whom I’ll refer to as GiGi, with some interesting comments.  

We’ve exchanged several emails and one thing GiGi mentioned was that some of us carry our boobs a bit too high on the torso. I know that’s true for JJ. Part of that is simply because we don’t let the bra straps out far enough. Either that or the bras we buy don’t have straps that are long enough for our torso. 

If your bras don’t have straps that are long enough and the bra has detachable straps, you can buy strap extenders for them. The goal is to have the boobs hang naturally.

Where should a CD’s breasts hang on her torso? Let's discreetly look at the GGs around us and observe how their breasts hang. Remember, this is research! Other than teenagers whose breasts have only recently developed, you likely see that the apex of the breast (where the nipple would be) tend to fall about mid-way or lower between your armpit and the crook of your elbow. And as a woman ages, they can be lower.  

If you’re looking to blend in, think a bit about your silhouette. It’s more than just the size of the breast, it’s where they sit, their shape and how they move. I’ll cover some of those things in a future blog. 

Of course, all this advice is just for those of us who use some type of breast form in our bras, not for those who have grown their own. So much stuff to consider and I thank GiGi for the fodder for today’s blog post.

I’ll be back

That’s it for today. I hope you spend a little time looking in a mirror critically the next time you get dressed. I also should mention that my comments here are mostly directed at CDs who are attempting to blend in with the other women out there. 

In the meantime, I’d welcome comments here on the blog or by email at Jenn6nov at sign gmail dot com.

Zoe, thank you for the information about this film.


  1. OMG - I actually watched that TV movie! It made a huge impression on me at the time that, after one viewing, I still remember it all these years later.

  2. Sometimes we old CIS-gen women hoick our bosoms up way too high, as well. It's a problem that is easily fixable.

  3. Anatomically the base of the breast is fixed between the 2nd and 6th ribs, roughly supported by the crook of the elbows. After that , sag and oversize would make their position appear lower but the base remains.

  4. "boobs for CDs." ? I have hundreds of CDs never knew there was a swap option :)

  5. I vividly remember watching that movie with my dad when it came out. My dad said to me, “sometimes in life you’ve got to do extraordinary things to survive”. Little did he know how much I wanted to dress as a girl.
